“We got up on them early, then our offense just (disappeared),” Bruin head coach Mike Viola said. “We just let them nibble their way back into the game. They just seemed to want it more than we did.”

Brian Hart hit a home run and finished at 2-for-3. Nick LaRash also went 2-for-3. Keith Roberts had two RBIs.

Bear River will host Woodcreek of Roseville at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
